Oklahoma Surplus Property Auction Bidding to Close June 19

More than 100 listings are open for bidding in an online auction of Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation surplus property. Potential bidders can see the list of auction items, photos and videos online at purplewave.com/auction/180619A.

Auction vehicles include 21 pickups and seven four-wheelers. Details about each vehicle are provided in the online listing. Several lots of merchandise are up for bid, including two agricultural tractors, storage sheds, propane tanks and aquariums.

Bidding on items will begin closing one item per minute at noon CDT on Tuesday, June 19. Items will close in the order listed on the website.

Johnny Hill, property manager for the Wildlife Department, said vehicles are always popular among bidders. “All of our auction vehicles undergo scheduled maintenance from the time we get them new to the time we sell them. And anyone who buys something in our auction is also supporting the Wildlife Department at the same time.”

The Wildlife Department has been holding its surplus property auctions on the Internet for three years. The process has proved to be more efficient and more convenient for bidders.

Bidders must register with the online auction site before bidding. A 10 percent buyer’s premium will be added to all winning bids to arrive at the final price. Other auction details, terms and conditions are available at the auction website.

Items are sold to the highest bidder as-is, where-is. Many items are available for inspection from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, June 18, at the Department’s interim headquarters, 2145 N.E. 36 St. in Oklahoma City. Other items are at various Wildlife Department sites across the state. Item locations are listed in the “Auction Details” tab on the auction web page.
